Sampeng Midnight Market, as the name suggests, is really for serious wholesale shoppers. Our earlier post of Sampeng Lane features the daytime market which runs from about 9am to 5pm, daily.
Sampeng Midnight Market opens only on Saturday and Sunday from about 1am to 5:30am. Some vendors might be open from 11pm but shoppers usually visit from 1am onwards.
Most locals, who are shop owners themselves, visit Sampeng to purchase wholesale items in bulk and they are mainly accessories and bags. This is probably the cheapest shopping in Chinatown, Bangkok.
The market is crowded and as usual, it can get very humid so bring a fan if you are intending to do some serious shopping here!
